Google You

Google your name and you will find
Electronic doppelgänger of your mind
Ancient binary detritus left behind

First your changing Facebook face
Minutiae and trivia of the world you grace
When gone the blue with black replace

Next comes your working impression
Depths of present job depression
Then abandoned workplace regression

Old offices still use your face unpaid
Followed by life resuméed and displayed
Professional lies and desperate wants arrayed

See every article you’ve ever typed
Never read or published despite being hyped
The book that never sold was tripe

Last appear forgotten one page blogs
Ineffaceable data trails and logs
The internet ignores the space it hogs

This dead digital immortality
Lacks true achievement’s luster or quality
But keeps us alive in civilized banality
